Kyle Palmieri

March 5, 2018 at 9:47 am

Fantasy playoffs are almost here, and the New Jersey Devils are making a push to return to the NHL playoffs after a long hiatus. After Palmieri returned from injury, the Devils have also acquired Patrick Maroon and Michael Grabner, and currently hold the #1 Wild Card spot with one month to go in the regular season.

Palmieri is currently skating on the first line alongside all-star Tyler Hall, and 1st overall pick Nico Hischier. After quietly scoring 56 goals in his first two seasons in New Jersey, Palmieri wasn’t earning much respect heading in the fantasy drafts last October. However; ever since returning from injury he has been dominating.

Over the last month he ranks top 40 in Yahoo! standard scoring leagues with 7G, 4A, +7, 3PPP and 50+ SOGs. While averaging 17+ min TOI and 12%+ S%, he has totaled 31 points in 47 games. Although he is averaging .66 PPG for the full season, he has been averaging .73 PPG over the past month.

He’s only owned in 54% of leagues. Although he is mostly a goal scorer, you won’t be PUNTing other categories by throwing him in your lineup. He could be that final FA acquisition to get you over the hill.

A lot of it has to do with Tyler Hall absolutely crushing and that point streak he was on. These 2 are really connecting.
